Leaders of a coalition of Ohio school districts that won its lawsuit against the state for a new funding system says it may take Ohio back to court. They say the state’s compromise budget bill scales back planned increases to fix the funding system. The coalition for equity and adequacy in school funding lawyer Nicholas Pittner says he will argue that the Ohio Supreme Court failed to provide a remedy in its last ruling, issued in December. The Ohio house and senate enacted a two-year 48.8 billion dollar budget bill Friday, June 20th. While the 14.5 billion dollars for schools is nearly an 800 million dollar increase over what they now receive it comes up almost 150 million dollars short of plan republican leaders devised to fix the funding system and appease the court.
